|RE: [platform-ant-dev] Run Ant with an external file !|
We no longer have a class called AntAction so it would be best to start with which build you are using?
You have two mechanisms open to you:
Have a look at the org.eclipse.ant.core.AntRunner directly or even better use the launch configuration framework.
<<this assumes you are on a relatively recent integration build>>
I would start by looking at the AntLaunchShortcut class and see how it sets the attributes on a launch configuration that are required for the launch. Then make use of DebugUITools.launch(ILaunchConfiguration, String).
You should not use the AntLaunchShortcut class directly but rather use it as an example on how to do the correct thing in your code.
Hope this helps
